About the Peterson Pipes

The ones marked Early Republic date between 1949 and 1963, dated by the faux hallmarks on the nickel band, only used until 1963. The one marked Pre-Republic will have been made between 1923 and 1949. The style suggest c. 1940. The rest are more recent, purchased over the last 30 or so years. The System Star pipes are/were equivalent to the System Premier and also have the silver band and have a wine red stain. They were made between c. 1970 and 1985. Mine was bought bought new (old stock) in 2010.

The latest Peterson to be added to the collection - hallmarked for Dublin, 1908.
